Welcome to the UPENN Mouse Pathobiology Resource Wiki


Littermates; the effect of a transgene has limited the growth of this mouse compared to its sibling.

  • This is a demonstration site for a long-term project: to build a murine pathobiology resource. It is still in an early phase of development. We are recruiting participation from the biomedical and veterinary communities.
  • We seek to build an online reference library for normal mouse histology and pathobiology to serve the veterinary and biomedical research communities.

We invite topic suggestions, comments, as well as contributions of relevant, resourced, and professionally reviewed murine histology, pathology, and cross-sectional imaging

Topics reviewed
